Lentil Stew with Ginger Yogurt – MY WAY

I posted this photo on my instagram this week and got a bunch of requests for the recipe so I thought I’d post it here! I used to make this for dinner all the time, but then we ate it a little too often so it fell off of our recipe radar for a while. … Continue reading

Roasted tomato, red pepper and garlic soup

A few weeks ago, just before Halloween, the Mister and I realized that it was the final weekend of the season for our beloved neighbourhood farmer’s market. Slightly concerned, we grabbed a bunch of cloth bags and headed out to grab as much as we could for what cash we had on us.  Since it … Continue reading

Cottage breakfast

It’s September now and the days are starting to cool off..which sucks. Summer is pretty much over and that means goodbye long, sunny days, weekend camping trips, beach days, post-work patio drinks, summer runs by the waterfront, swimming pools, hot and hazy long weekends, secret boozy picnics in Trinity Bellwoods park, toasting marshmallows over a … Continue reading

Fresh vegetable gazpacho (You can win friends with salad!)

We’re in the midst of a heat wave here in Toronto and I am not going to lie – I love it!  What I do not love is cooking in this heat, even though I live in a condo with a/c – i despise a/c and only put it on when desperate.  Yesterday the temperature … Continue reading

I’m still doing social media/web stuff but in an entirely new industry so sometimes I am all: … Continue reading

Jerk Spiced Roasted Butternut-Apple Soup

We’ve had a relatively mild winter here in Toronto this year and I think it’s affected the type of stuff we’re making for dinners. We usually make a lot of soups, chilis and stews during the winter but this year? Not so much. We HAVE a had a few icy days though and on one … Continue reading

Talking while eating

I have a few new recipe posts on the way but for now, I give you this: Guy Fieri Talking While Eating: I found this earlier today and for some reason I find it absolutely hysterical (and gross). It’s even funnier if you just listen to the audio without watching the video! ENJOY!

Gastown Gamble Screening

Last night I was lucky enough to be invited to a screening of a new tv show on the Oprah Winfrey Network called “Gastown Gamble“. The weather got in on the action as well and disguised itself appropriately as “Vancouver winter” complete with rain and fog – eventually giving way to gale force winds! Fortunately … Continue reading
